It is now universally used by the British military in India, China, and Indian Islands. I wore that topi in China, India, and Egypt some six months, including June, July, and August.

This is the best safeguard against China, India, and Egypt some six months, including June, July, and August. It is the best thing possible. It gives air between the head and the outer case all round. This is the best safeguard against sunstroke or congestion. It is a mistake to wear any thing thin or light like straw. The desiderata are (1) a thick wall between the head and the sun's rays, and (2) air between the wall and the head. The weight on the head, when adjusted around the side, and not on the top, is of little consequence, as all men experienced in Eastern life and travel will tell you. The rim to this protects the eyes, and back of the head and neck. In the East, the back of the head and back of the neck are con

He had also noticed the ceremonies of the completion of the monument in the presence of many distinguished persons from all parts of the country, some of whom, said Colonel Webster, I regret to say would hardly like to renew that visit, or recall that scene. Within a few days after this, I sailed for China; and I watched, while light and eyesight lasted, till its lofty summit faded at last from view.

He concluded as follows:— From this spot I take my departure, like the mariner commencing his voyage; and, wherever my eyes close, they will be turned hitherward toward this North; and, in whatever event, grateful will be t
m it proper to speak briefly of the services rendered to our soldiers and to the Union cause by two ladies of Boston, who, during the entire war, devoted almost their whole time to works of charity and love, for the comfort of our soldiers, and the alleviation of their sufferings; one of whom was Mrs. Harrison Gray Otis, and the other Miss Abby W. May. Mrs. Harrison Gray Otis was the daughter of a Boston merchant, William H. Boardman, Esq., who was largely engaged in the North-west Coast, China, and India trade. She was early married to the eldest son of the Hon. Harrison Gray Otis, who bore his father's name. Upon the death of her husband, she passed seven years in Europe, for the purpose of educating her three sons, and returned to America, making Boston her permanent home. Connected by blood and marriage with some of the oldest and most distinguished families in the country, blessed with personal attractions, mental gifts, and a magnetism that drew about her the good as we
